10 Best Wedding Registry Items


This is not a comprehensive list of everything you could ever imagine registering for-- I'll save that for another time (like maybe after we get married and figure out what we actually need). Instead, this post is compilation of our favorites-- the fun, the unique, and the things that you never even knew you needed! This list is a great starting off point is you are recently engaged and just beginning to gather ideas for your registry or if you are a wedding guest in search of a dope present for newlyweds. (Or even if weddings totally aren't your thing and you're just searching for cool home decor!) We registered on Zola, which I highly recommend. It is a great all in one resource with tons of trendy options.

Holiday Decorations : Someone gave me the advice to register for holiday decor essentials such as festive tablecloths, dishes, pillows, and garlands so that when our first Christmas rolls around don't splurge quite as much... super great advice and also a great way to make those items even more sentimental year after year.

Crosely Bluetoth Turn Table : This is both a functional and decorative piece. Kyle has gotten me a couple records that are really special to our relationship, so I can’t wait to display them and make them a focal point.

Set of 3 Woven Baskets We plan on living in a pretty small place when we first get married. Our thought process is that now will be the time to save more than ever in both the realms of finance and space. With that in mind, small spaces can look messy and cluttered really quickly if you’re not careful. The solution to this problem? Storage that is both functional and decorative!

Retro Dining Chairs : Target has been on its A-game lately. These look like they were plucked straight out of the 60s and I am all about it. These chairs are definitely more of an investment, but I have yet to find a more affordable option when it comes to art deco style velvet.

KitchenAid Mixer  : No registry is complete without an upright mixer. This is one of those items that lasts (basically) forever and will be there for every family holiday, birthday celebration, and baking night. Some of my favorite childhood memories were spent gathered round the mixer with my mom, so it feels like a step into adulthood to get a KitchenAid of my own.

Outdoor String Lights This is another one of those things that is perfectly suited for minimal living-- outdoor lights can really dress up a space, even if its just a tiny patio. Paired with a small pieces of outdoor furniture, even the simplest space can become the perfect place to enjoy morning coffee or dinner outside.

Tandem Sleeping Bag We are big time campers, so this is such a fun gift for the outdoor loving couple. Between the two of us, we already had most camping essentials, but this is a great add on.

Bar Cart A good bar cart is a great staple piece that is timeless and so useful. Bar carts can be one of the most multi purpose furniture pieces- they can be used as book shelves, side tables, or even for food storage in the kitchen. I love to rearrange and redecorate all the time, so I love how many different ways a piece like this can be used.

Cook Books I am so excited to have a space and a kitchen of our own! Living with several roommates meant very limited space and cooking ability (first I was in a sorority house of 60 and then an apartment of 6!). I’m so excited for many date-nights-in spent learning new recipes.

Artifact Uprising Photo Album: Hands down the most quality photo company out there... whether you gather photos and make an album yourself or go the gift card route for the couple to make a wedding album, either way is a big time gifting win!
